The steps that we have taken over the past year to better leverage our global presence in managing our own costs have been paying off, and we still have a number of initiatives underway which we expect will continue to drive revenue growth and profitability in the coming quarters. On a final note, the integration of ClinPhone is tracking well, and we expect further progress as we go forward."
